Audi RS5 Highlights
The Audi RS5 is powered by a 2.9-litre bi-turbo V6 petrol engine that puts out 450PS of power and 600Nm of torque. This engine is mated to an 8-speed Tiptronic gearbox and Audi’s quattro all-wheel drive system. Audi claims the RS5 can achieve 0-100kmph in just 3.9 seconds and hit an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph. We strapped on our VBox onto the RS5, and buried the throttle into the mat. In the real-world, with regular petrol, the RS5 managed to hit 100kmph in 4.29 seconds. Brimmed up with high octane petrol and in the right conditions, we’ve got enough reason to believe the 3.9-second time is achievable. It’s brutal when you put the hammer down in gear too, catapulting to 80kmph from 20kmph in a mere 3.19 seconds. That speaks volumes of the gearbox’s responsiveness. Then there are the super sized brakes that drop anchor like nothing else. 32.94 metres is all it took to come to a dead halt from 100kmph. Finally, Audi claims the RS5 will deliver 10.8kmpl if you don’t drive like a lunatic. Realistically, expect single-digit figures.
Exterior and Interior
The Audi RS5 Coupe blends sharp lines, soft curves and boxy wheel arches for the quintessential RS look. There are additional air inlets on the front grille, which is wider and fatter than the one seen on the regular A5 Coupe. It also gets all-LED ‘Matrix’ headlamps, 12-inch 10-spoke forged aluminium wheels and LED taillamps with dynamic indicators. Audi even offers an optional matte aluminium and carbon exterior package for the RS5. Yes, the Audi RS5 sure is a head-turner.
Like the exterior, the cabin of the RS5 feels exactly the same as the A5/S5 siblings. However, it gets unique elements such as a three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, Alcantara upholstery on the dashboard and doors with aluminium/anthracite (grey) inlays, electrically-adjustable seats covered in Nappa leather, ambient lighting and illuminated door sills. It feels like an out-and-out grand tourer rather than a car meant for the racetrack.
The Audi RS5 Coupe is available in a single variant with eight paint options. It also gets a panoramic sunroof as standard. The Audi MMI system supports Apple CarPlay and has other connectivity settings such as Bluetooth and Aux-In as well. It also gets parking assist and Audi’s virtual cockpit instrument cluster.
Mercedes-AMG E63 S: The performance saloon from Mercedes-AMG features four doors and is therefore a more practical option to the Audi RS5. However, unlike the RS5, the E63 S could easily be mistaken for a regular E-Class, which is quite a dampener, especially when you consider the fact that it costs Rs 1.50 crore (ex-showroom). The E63 S is powered by a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 engine that develops 603PS of power and 850Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a 9-speed auto ‘box and promises bucketloads of oomph. Oh, there’s even a drift mode that’ll let you spin the tail out if you ever feel like it.
BMW M4: The M4 is priced at Rs 1.33 crore (ex-showroom) and is powered by a 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 440PS of power and 550Nm of torque. Like the RS5, the M4 is a 2+2 coupe capable of traversing through countries in a rapid fashion. However, it is the oldest car of the lot now and has started to show its age.
If you are searching for a fast 2+2 coupe, then look no further. The Audi RS5 is the perfect machine for covering long distances quickly and without breaking your bank or your spine. However, it’s a shame that it no longer has the muscle car-like appeal of the older generation model, which was equipped with a 4.2-litre V8 motor.
